Traslados . . .‏

First off, we had transfers this past weekend, I cannot believe how fast time is going by, en serio [seriously], the last 6 weeks just flew by like the blink of an eye, ha ha but seriously it is incredible how fast time goes sometimes...anyway with transfers...I am...staying in Dolores for another 6 weeks. I'm not sad b/c there are families that I have come to love, but in all honesty I am not too thrilled either. It still is just complicated, with the people and the mosquito's. 
Any who, like you mentioned in your email Dad, yea I know that it's true, that the things I am missing out on there, are just temporary. [Told her about our quick trip to St. George for some much needed warm sunshine and golf] I am eternally grateful for the experiences that I am having and for the friendships that I am making (not only with the people in my areas and the missionaries from other countries, but ALL the ones from the state and Utah 
(b/c there are a ton ha ha). And I know you guys are all doing great and everything will be there when I get back.  While I was in Pinamar, having a difficult time with some things, I asked for a blessing of comfort (oh, how grateful I am for the Priesthood) there was a part that caught my attention, my lider de distrito [District Leader] said something like, I bless you with the comfort and knowledge that your family is doing well and that all the things back home are good. o algo asi [or something so].  It has been cool to see the blessing and direction that I have received in blessings have been coming true and that everything is good back home. That is definitely a testimony builder. 
In the few days that have passed since emailing last, [heard from her last Thursday while traveling to St. George] not much happened besides having one investigator tell us that after mucho tiempo [long time] investigating and attending church that he doesn´t want to go to church anymore. It was so sad when we received that message. He has been investigating for a while and knows a ton. When we visited him he told us that there was too much hypocrisy and that there's a few things that he doesn´t agree with. It is super sad b/c he has a testimony. He knows these things. The only problem, besides thinking that the natural man is not an enemy to God, is that he thinks way too much with his mind and not with his heart. 
I have noticed that a lot here, the people are afraid it seems to open there heart to really receive all the things that God has in store for them. They are caught up in the things and calamities of the world to understand that all of this is just part of the plan that God has for us. But at least he said that he will keep reading his scriptures. He has finished the book of Mormon and is in the D & C. One day in his life I hope he opens his heart to really understand all the blessings that he has in this life. 
Thanks for everything, the quotes, the stories and advice. They help un montón! [a lot]
Now it´s my turn. I read this morning in 1 Tim 1:13-14, saying something along the lines of we can receive grace and mercy in our lives but we can receive it more abundantly when we have faith and love in Christ. That is a rough translation as I read it in Spanish. I don´t read many things in English anymore, ha ha its great. 

Hope you all have a great week. Until next week, Chau!
